The school year is winding down and for a lot of parents, it can be challenging to find ways to keep the kids occupied throughout the summer. Sure, your little ones can be entertained by playing outside or watching YouTube videos at home all day or... you can sign them up for classes that are not only fun but educational.

There is plenty to do in the City of Trees

While we're looking at nine ways to entertain your kids, it's important to note that there are 84 pages in the activity guide that we scanned through.

They range from sports to art, and even cooking.

There are varying costs and if you're interested in learning more about the activities (which range from ice hockey to performing arts), follow the link below the photo to learn more about the program.
